Thon, poulet et patate douce Birthday Cake!
It does sound fancy and it looks fancy! This birthday cake is easy to make, and yes the name mentioned all of the recipes which consist of tuna, chicken, and sweet potato!
1 5-ounce can of white albacore tuna in water with no salt added
1/2 cup finely diced cooked chicken
1/2 cup pure sweet potato puree
rice flour, optional
mashed potatoes for frosting, also optional
Line a small rimmed baking sheet with waxed paper.
Lock your cats out of the kitchen unless you want them to lose their minds when you open the tuna can.
Open the tuna can. Drain the tuna of any water, then scoop the tuna into a medium mixing bowl. Flake the tuna into small bits.
Add the diced chicken to the bowl, then stir in the sweet potato puree, adding just enough to keep the mixture together. You may not need the entire 1/2 cup.
If your sweet potato is a little loose and watery, add rice flour 1 teaspoon at a time to soak up the excess moisture.
You can do the fancy chef thing as I did in the photos above and place a 1-inch round cookie cutter on a plate, then scoop the mix into the cutter, smoothing it to the edges. Lift the cutter and voila! You have a perfect little round of “cake.”
To frost the cake, you can get even fancier and pipe the mashed potatoes with a pastry bag fitted with a large piping tip, or you can just dollop a bit on top.
